With her son, Jeremy, she returns to her grandmother's dilapidated house and tries to begin a new life.
She meets a police detective, Ben, who falls for her, and she prays her fresh visions of bloodshed and death deep among the dark trees are not true.

I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
I really enjoyed this old timey horror novel!Kimberly Henrie was the perfect narrator.Sarah has no choice but to return to her hometown,to the house her grandmother left her.She has lost her marraige,home and job.Her family tried to move away ,but ,the evil still found them.
I really liked this book. It was super creepy. I thought the characters were well-developed, and I loved the character of the grandmother, as well as her relationship with her grandkids. The book kept me engaged, wanting to know what would happen next. It has a twist at the end, which I never suspected. I listened to the Audible audio version and the narrator was enjoyable to listen to. She had a nice voice and good character differentiation. I would listen to more books narrated by Kimberly Henrie, and I would definitely read more books by Kathryn Meyer Griffith. I really enjoy her books.
Actual rating 4.5 stars
This book made it official, I am a big fan of Kathryn Meyer Griffith! This was my third book from this author and I've loved each one. It was such a creepy story, and not at all cheesy. The book starts out a little slower, with a lot of set up for the rest of the story. It didn't take long to get really interesting though. I was hooked early in and couldn't stop listening. I love characters that have abilities of some kind, so I really liked that the main character was psychic. The narrator of the audiobook did an awesome job and was perfect for this story. I really enjoyed this audiobook, and I will be reading another book from this author soon!
I was provided this audiobook in exchange for an honest review
When financial hardship leads to Sarah and her son Jeremy moving into her deceased grandmother's house, something is set into motion that it's too late to stop.
Evil stalks the night, people are dying, and while Sarah thinks she is the only psychic, Jeremy is having all kinds of experiences of his own.
How will they stop it? How many people will have to die before they figure it out?
This is the first book I have read by Kathryn Meyer Griffith, but I will definitely be reading more.
I enjoyed the plot, the characters, and
when I browsed through lists of her books it looked like they hit on some great topics like witchcraft, psychics, and even vampires. One of them that caught my interest even has something about old Egyptian magic!
Also, Sarah seems to be a character in many of the books and reading a book where the main character has my name amuses me!
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
Kathryn Meyer Griffith is a wonderful writer, especially with any story that involves mysteries. Evil Stalks the Night is filled with suspense and a thrill ride. It flowed smoothly and was easily drawn into this mystery.
Narrator Kimberly Henrie did a great job. Her voice kept me enthralled from start to finish. Listening to her voice was like watching and visualising the story as it unfolded. A great story and a wonderful performance. A perfect 5 🌟 rating.
I love audiobooks!!!
I loved the main character, she was really easy to relate to.
Stephen King's It, also about a scary as heck creature that kills little kids in horrible ways.
Listening to her voice is like watching a movie. It's effortless, and if I close my eyes, I can easily visualize it.
Not laughing or crying, but there was a point where I had to take a break because it was so scary. Seriously, I'm a mother of a young boy who lives near spooky woods...
Don't read this at bedtime!
Yes, but I always prefer the audio versions. They feel more real, if that makes sense.
I don't want to give away the story, but there is one part with this little girl in it that completely freaked me out.
She made me feel more connected to the characters. She did a very good job.
Great story, great perfomance
"narrator bored this story to within an inch of its"
well, didnt like much about it, think the soft spoken flat toned narrator might have a lot to do with it
a more enthusiastic narrator
the narrator needs to read only love stories......
"If you go out in the woods today..."
Yes. I think that this was the author's first book but it is skillfully written for all that. It's a well paced, spooky tale of a family being hounded to extinction. Meyer Griffith plays on the fairy tale theme of something nasty in the deep, dark woods, weaves in a haunted house and adds a splash of psychic ability.
Sarah is a likeable protagonist although sometimes her life seems just a little too tragic to bear. So for that reason I think I liked Detective Ben the most, he adds a much need touch of lightness.
No, I haven't listend to this narrator before but I would happily do so again. She has a pleasant voice and she does a good job with this spooky tale.
